Super fresh and bright with musky red fruit aromas as well as gently marzipan scented biscuits on the nose; spices all here too. Great complexity and depth, really elegant, assertive and deep. Long and even, superb depth through the finish. Great wine. Drink young and precocious.
Eric Lebel achieves the beautiful color of this wine with the addition of Pinot Noir fermented on its skins. The rest of the blend includes reserve wines and selections of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier that come together in Krug’s most ephemeral Champagne, an effervescent mist of flavor with the depths of a grand cru Vosne-Romanée. Resonant bass notes hold earthy complexity while vibrant freshness rises with the bubbles. An elegant rosé to pour with thin slices of roast duck breast.
A lovely, creamy rosé Champagne, seamlessly layering vivid acidity with dried fig, poached apricot and Mandarin orange peel fruit notes, offering exotic accents of grilled nut, curry spice and dogwood blossom that expand and echo on the finish. Disgorged winter 2015. (AN)
Pale orange. A highly perfumed bouquet displays scents of blood orange, redcurrant and gingerbread, plus spicy oak and floral nuances. Juicy, dense and spicy on the palate, with a smoky mineral quality lifting and sharpening the sappy citrus fruit and red berry flavors. Shows noteworthy intensity on the finish, which leaves notes of orange zest, candied rose and toasted notes behind. This Champagne's balance of power and vivacity is pretty impressive. (JR)
The NV Brut Rosé is brilliant and finely-sculpted in the glass, with floral aromatics, pulsating minerality and chiseled fruit. Less austere than it can be, the Rosé impresses for its combination of tension and textured, phenolic weight. There is so much to like. (AG)
This is an onion-skin-colored wine, ripe and showing some maturity as well as rich red and citrus fruits. It is beautifully balanced, the pure, crisp fruit elegantly integrated into the lightly mineral texture. This stylish bottling is ready to drink. (RV)
Krug’s NV Brut Rose ID 212020 — disgorged in spring, 2012, and as always for this cuvée, featuring slightly fewer and younger components than the Grande Cuvée, and an addition of still red Pinot — makes a bright, juicy impression of red raspberry and red currant mingled with fresh lime and tingling with mouthwatering mineral salts. Firmer in feel than the Grande Cuvée and without that bottling’s remarkable juxtaposition of creaminess with brightness, nor indeed its complexity, this finishes with the invigoration of red berry seed-crunching; a piquant hint of orange rind; and fascination of alkaline, saline and chalky nuances. It might well prove interesting to follow for a few years, though I haven’t the experience to address this cuvée’s track record. (DS)
Very pale salmon-peach, a beautifully soft, silky mouse – almost a true crémant style – with very fresh, delicate, summer fruits and fine acidity. 19.5/20 points.
ID 414068. The 21st edition. The first Krug rosé was released in 1983; proof that rosé is not produced every year. 47% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay, 16% Pinot Meunier. Based on vintages 2007 back to 2002. Disgorged 2014. Quite deep strawberry pink. Tiny bead. Massively fruity. Explosive yet super-smooth fruit. Clearly this can age. 18/20 points.
